The association between uric acid (UA) and coronary artery disease (CAD) was controversial. It was still unclear how the UA level changes with age and gender.
This article was published in the following journal.

We investigated the association between serum uric acid (SUA) levels and insulin secretion and resistance in prediabetes patients, which is currently unclear.
Clusterin plays an important role in the cardiovascular system, and serum levels of clusterin are higher in coronary artery disease (CAD) patients. Here, we measured serum clusterin levels in prematur...
Serum uric acid (UA) level has been reported to be associated with chronic allograft nephropathy and graft failure in patients who undergo kidney transplantation (KT). However, the role of serum UA le...
Complement C1q tumor necrosis factor-related proteins (CTRPs), belonging to the CTRP superfamily, are extensively involved in regulating metabolism and the immune-inflammatory response. The inflammato...
Previous studies are suggestive of the protective role of uric acid on bone in the middle-aged and elderly. Whether this association exists in younger individuals has not been examined. This investiga...
Serum uric acid level is a commonly measured biomarker. The association between serum uric acid level and the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases has been observed in some studies, ...
Uric acid is the final breakdown product of purine degradation in humans. The association between high serum uric acid levels and arterial stiffness as well as endothelial dysfunction has ...
The deleterious effects of hyperuricemia (HUA) on cardiovascular disease (CVD) were well established. Aspirin is the most commonly prescribed antiplatelet agent for primary or secondary pr...
The purpose of this study is to examine the consequences of lowering serum uric acid in pre-hypertensive, obese adolescents pathways involved with how uric acid mediated hypertension and r...
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a common clinical manifestation of the systemic atherosclerotic process, and the ankle brachial index (ABI) is an ideal tool to diagnose PAD. The assoc...
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
Abdominal artery that follows the curvature of the stomach. The right gastroepiploic artery is frequently used in CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS GRAFTING; MYOCARDIAL REVASCULARIZATION, and other vascular reconstruction.
According to the National Arthritis Data Workgroup, an estimated 6 million people in the United States report having experienced gout at some point in their lives. In fact, gout is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis in men over the age of 40....
